Temple B’nai Abraham Men’s Club Whitewater Rafting Trip
Wednesday, August 8, 2012 • 3:09pm
Temple B’nai Abraham Men’s Club held its inaugural summer whitewater rafting trip on the Lehigh River on Sunday, August 5. The 15 participants (in three boats) endured 9 miles of Class III rapids on the Lehigh River. This whitewater rafting trip was planned and organized by TBA Men’s Club Corresponding Secretary and TBA Board of Trustees member Carey Gertler and supported by Men’s Club Co-Presidents Craig Kantor and Lawrence Moskowitz.
Class III rapids are rapids with high irregular waves and narrow passages that require complex maneuvering. A Class III rapid may be caused by a combination of narrowing riverbed, standing waves, small falls and large boulders around which the raft must steer. Also, a high volume of water may cause waves over three feet. All enjoyed this exhilarating adventure as they were rafted on the exciting rapids through the fabulous Lehigh River Gorge combined with its spectacular wilderness scenery.
